Today was a big day for these fellas …

… these "dummies" caught the first flight of The Raven for the 2012 season.

Dummies? I think not!

To celebrate their raucous return to the station (and yes, they were armless pre-flight), let's give away a pair of tickets, shall we?

Take a look at these pasty-faced gents. The two in front look relaxed, if a bit stunned.

But those two in back – see how one is leaned in toward the other? What's that dummy saying?

It's "crunch time" here at the park, so we need a good laugh. Make us LOL and you could win a pair of tickets.

Here's what to do:

1. Give us sass. Give us silly. Give us snark. But keep your "Dummy Dialogue" family-friendly, okay?
2. We called it "Dummy Dialogue" because we have an unhealthy alliteration affinity (see?); it can be Dummy Monologue if you prefer. We like one-liners, too.
3. You must be 13 years old or older to be eligible.
4. Holiday World & Splashin' Safari employees (and their immediate family members) are not eligible. (Quit complaining! You earn plenty of free tickets during the season – let these other nice folks win some tickets once in a while.)
5. To enter, post your Dummy Dialogue as a comment here on this HoliBlog post. Don't worry if it doesn't show up right away, we moderate our comments. And we sometimes nap between 2 and 4am.
6. To be eligible, you must include your email address in the "email field." It won't show up publicly in your post, but it's how we'll notify you if you win.
7. Only one entry per blog "comment." If you're so incredibly witty that you have three entries, then you must post three separate comments. Don't get carried away, though; you're not that funny.
8. This contest runs through 12 noon CDT on Monday, April 2.
9. The judges' decision is final*.

* … and we're no dummies!

    The guy in the back looks like he wants to tell them the ride is over, but he realizes they are probably a little “stiff” from the ride and can’t get out.

    Bob: “Don’t worry John, we’ll pick it up on one of the last 24 test runs we have left.”
    John: “Do we really have to test run this 25 times? It’s been standing since 1995. Don’t they trust it by now?”
    Bob: “Obviously not. You lost an arm!”

    The dad dummy is asking the kid dummy what to do if she is lost in the park. The kid dummy says “find a holiday world employee”. The dad dummy says ” how do you know if someone is a holiday world employee”? The kid dummy says “they have a broom in their hands”. This is an actual conversation we had with our daughter last summer and we still laugh about it.

    Once upon a midday cheery, while I rode on, weak and weary,
    Over deafening quaint and curious volume of wood coaster’s roar –
    Though I spotted no arms flapping, suddenly there came a clapping,
    As of people high-five slapping, slapping though my back was sore.
    “‘Tis some coaster,” I muttered, “slapping me both aft and fore.”
    Quoth the dummy, “NEVERMORE!”

    For the month of April, our family was chosen at our parish to pray for vocations, which basically means we were presented with a special crucifix and special prayers for us to pray as a family for VOCations. Of course our little ones got a little confused and thought that we were chosen to pray for VACations. So of course what did they want to pray for? A trip to Holiday World!
